I’m a Bad Mom because…


A Bad Moms Christmas is releasing in South Africa this week! Are you excited? I loved the first movie, so I am really looking forward to watching the second one. The movie got me thinking about how us moms are always in the spotlight.

Firstly, some people believe that all “moms” are supposed to do is, take care of their husbands and kids. Nothing else. WRONG! We are allowed to have dreams and goals too. Working full-time or building an empire doesn’t make you a BAD Mom.

I am tired of people telling me how to mother my kids or balance my work and home life. I am tired of the judgments within the mom community – especially the bullying and honestly I am tired of all those moms who think that they are “perfect”.

Let’s be real. There is no such thing as a perfect mom! We have all done something that we regret or wish that we could take back but sometimes we are forced to do things to keeps us sane and our family happy.

Stop making us feel guilty and let’s rather work together on creating a Mom tribe.

    I’m a bad mum for most of the things on your list. Plus as a new mum some 9 years ago I was in the car with 2 month old baby and nephews, 2 bees flew in and out we all jumped and stepped away before my nephew reminded me I’d left the baby behind. Pretty much set the tone for my motherhood journey. And I let them eat Nutella on bread when we’re running late for school…which is most days. I could go on. *stands up and takes a bow*
